Meet Melissa Joan Hart, who lost a whopping 40 pounds on Nutrisystem! She is a mother of three sons named Mason (8 years), Braydon (5 years) and Tucker (17 months). Was it a magic? Here Melissa Joan Hart explains how she lost 40 pounds on Nutrisystem and what it means to her.
Hi, I am Melissa Joan Hart and I lost 40 pounds using Nutrisystem.
Q: How much weight did you gain with Tucker?
A: I gained about 60 pounds of Tucker.
Q: Ok and that’s your third pregnancy?
A: Yeah and I lost a chunk of it. You know after the baby was born his weight and you know all the other stuff.
Q: But that’s only around 10 or 15 pounds.
A: That’s not a lot. I know it’s not a lot and so then I had another 30 to go. I lost that 30 and then it felt good and I kept going and now I am 40.
Q: Is Mark supportive? How does he handle?
A: He is very much supportive. Oh! He is the guy who is like disciplined and you know his whole thing is to “stick to it, be healthy and be fit”. He does it for me so I have returned him a favor. I mean I had three babies for him but I also wanted to look fantastic going into my 40’s.
Q: Are you going to have more babies?
A: I don’t know we haven’t decided. We thought so but now we are exhausted. I know the feeling! I know I feel great so I don’t want to go back there. For me it was important to bond with my child, as opposed to lose the weight. So, I waited until I was ready, and I knew I had the time, and then I made it a priority that I would eat well and then once I had some time and my schedule will open up I would get back to working out, spinning. I love spinning, I go home walking and love hiking. I got the joggers to walk while dragging the stroller so that I could stay active.
Q: Did you ever feel the pressure to get skinny right away?
A: Well, No not this time. In the beginning I felt uncomfortable pressure that I rebelled against. But this third time I had to go back on camera. I wanted to look great. So I focused on it once I knew I had the time.
Q: Are you there where you want to be?
A: I am actually. I am really happy where I am. I can live like this. I am on a good path. I feel amazing and I have just so much energy to give to my kids and work and my husband and you know it’s just a good time again.
Q: What are your experiences with the camera?
A: I stay away from that scenario but they don’t come stalk me. They don’t hunt me down because I do expose my child. I do take them out and make them see. So I have protected my kids by kind off putting them on camera and letting people see that these are my kids and this is my family. They are also coming with me in commercial of splash into the pool. They are cute. I said that I want them here. I think they are beyond adorable so why don’t show them off?
